You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one.After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

    I did not mean to sound curt. I have had to deal with the aftermath of do it yourself screen installations that took a $165.00 job and turned it into a $700.00 fiasco. I am going to save you the pain of that by asking that you get a qualified TV technician to do this.

How do I replace SMART TV SCREEN MODEL NO : LG 55LM7600 55'' 3D 1080p Full HD LED LCD Smart TV


You cannot replace a screen that big. The manufacturers wont ship it to you. IT has to be done by an authorized service center.

I have a 42" Phillips flat panel TV that fell off of the wall and broke the screen. Can it be repaired?


No repair can be done for a broken screen. Replacement only can be done. But it will cost 2/3rd of the total cost of the TV. If you think it is OK, replace it. Otherwise buy a new TV. It will be the best.

I have a 42 inch philips plasma tv with a broken screen, could i replace it with a screen from a panasonic 42 inch tv


No--this is called a PDP or plasma display panel and no two (even same brand) can be interchanged.

The cost of a Panel exceeds the cost of a new set--broken screen=fatal issue.

I need to replace a broken screen on a sony bravia kdl40ex400. I have worked on a lot of electronics, but never a tv screen replacement. Can i get the parts myself, and if so, is it changable by me?


Yes - just be careful with the ribbon cables. You are going to be replacing the LCD portion - behind it is the backlight assembly. Some may come with the entire assembly in one. You may need to do a little research to get a replacement - use Google to find a distributor.

When i plug in hd cable screen is distorted


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit from the link below.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on - TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a solution

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you know what you are doing. If you have never done this before we would advise calling a shop or if you want to do it yourself get a complete kit with instructions and support from www.TvRepairKits.com

Broken screen


all you can do is chase a used
Toshiba (Theater Wide HD) Model NO.20HLV86

or buy a replacement TV

was it covered under contents damage insurance ?

this TV has been discontinued
the design of this screen means its put together
layer by layer .sandwiched ..not just a glass cover

a screen replace can't be done
unless the Toshiba company "TV parts division " has the exact same screen to supply to your local TV repair man

Even finding circuitry boards to be supplied for that model have a slim chance
